Five year anniversary

fiveLast week I passed a professional milestone when I hit my five year anniversary with my current employer.

I’ve never worked at a firm for five years, always finding a graceful exit to work for another company after 3-4 years had passed.  I’ve enjoyed the first five years and have learned an awful lot.  I’ve also been able to do some amazing things like meeting President Clinton last spring in Boston, but who can say what is around the corner.

How long you have worked at your current job?  Does five years sound like a long time to you or have you been in your current role for far longer?

  1. Coming up on 15 years working for the same company in Boston’s financial district. As of the first of the year, I have cut back my hours to 25 per week.
    Still at 70 years old I enjoy the work I do.


  2. I worked for the state of Washington for 26 years.

  9. congratulation! 5 has been the magic number for me, and I only got there once. I don’t know if it’s the gypsy in me, hitting a glass ceiling, or what. I hope you continue to enjoy, or find something better.
